    Hi Bhargavi,

    Most of what irritates me like lack of civic sense, jumping queues, not caring for kids, rude comments , misusing our helpful nature etc. already have been written by others.
    I'd just like to add :

    1] The behaviour of Indians esp. when travelling by air ---- it is extremely annoying :bangcomp: to see them standing, blocking the aisle, pushing, shoving when the plane has not even finished taxiing down the runway & seat belt sign is still ON !!
    What's the bloody rush -----:idontgetit: can't they follow simple rules of etiquette ???

    2] I also can't stand people addicted to TV serials , that they neglect their family , Rantfriends and spoil their mental health too in the long run .

    3] Hearing actresses talk with their artificial accents and plastic smiles ... of their particular roles, or future roles etc. etc. -------- esp. hearing Aishwarya Rai talk :thumbsdown

    I can write this myself it is same for me. I hate the most at parents being careless with there child it irritates me like anything. And also when being asked the same question over and over I hate when someone is not paying attention and say huh? after I just got through saying something that really gets me to the coreRantToo about appearance when everyone says did you gain weight your getting very big or any pimple on face. Its like ok you have to point this out..like I didnt see it myself now I have to have someone say to me this stupid remarks:x. One more thing when someome is bad mouthing mothers who stay home like this american women and men who say that women who stay home are lazy and that they are so much better,that pisses me off like anything.tsk

    My pet peeve is people not respecting others time and turning up late. You invite someone for dinner by 8:00 and they turn up at 9:30!! Or they will tell you that they will drop by at 5 and you have to wait for them till 7 to show up. Some of them don't even call if they are delayed. Most people will never be late for a business appointment so why do people feel it is ok to turn up late for personal appointments??? This really really bugs me.....

    Things that irritate me:

    1. When travelling by bus in Chennai,some character sits in the front seat and spits out (especially spitting betel leaf)when the bus is travelling at full speed!!!

    2. Behaviour of our own people..some of them come to you ,ask all details ,act like friends,then the very next day,fail to recognise you or remember anything we said whereas we will think they are good friends and remember everything about them!

    3. These days some of the things my inlaws say bug me to the core-my mil does not even know the name of my one and only nephew whereas I am supposed to know the names of all the 500 people in their family,she thinks its below her dignity to go to the mill to grind flour etc in India and ridicules people who do itRant,in some TV show here in the U.S.,the presenter put his hand on a lady's shoulder and she found it offensive!Because she is vegetarian,they should not show non-veg items in the TV here,if even an AD comes,she will change the channel immediately!

    FIL will only talk about his association with high class people,all the rest are kide ,makode(insects!).He has to have the last word in every argument,whether his point makes sense or not!

    Anything bought in the great US of A is too good,even a rubber band,whereas in India,nothing is of good quality according to them.

    4. When people treat their servants as just that ..a servant and don't recognise that he /she too is a human being!

    5. When people demand/delegate others to do their work.

    6. My pet peeve is when people don't understand the value of money,especially when it belongs to someone else!

    There are many more,no time now to write!

    Hi BC,
    superstitions are not decreasing they are increasing. Even well educated people are worse when it comes to superstitions. When I was young, I have not heard of so much superstitious beliefes. People misuse the name of religions and beliefs and the public get fooled.

    Hello friend,

    Few of my list:

    1. Making others to wait
    2. When my husband and daughter mess up the house.
    3. When the TC is in full volume (Alarina Pidikadu)
    4. When people are waiting for a long, some (VIPs) comes and go inside in the temples.

    It endless.

    Dear meeta,
    Fantastic reply.:thumbsup.Of course we cannot being irritated on seeing a messy house.Well said.Foe example,a presentable may be important to us,but for others it may seem useless.So the best solution is not to get irritated(though it is very very difficult) and attend to it.Because if we keep on getting irritated we have to face many impacts for that.
    Nice to know about the book.I am now tempted to read the book.Who is the author?Why don't you post a thread in Book lover's forum.

    Thanks.Keep posting...

    Dear supriya,
    Thanks for stepping in....

    Your list is practical.I always wonder why the basic sense of returning a borrowed item is lagging.By any chance if i make somebody to wait due to some circumstances,i may really feel guilty and tensed.But some people never bother about the other person waiting and they are very casual.In my college days,my friend of mine always keep the other person waiting for atleast half an hour all the time.Though we insist,she never put her ears on it.Physical appearance is what god has given us.When a person comments about others,he/she may feel that they are perfect.:evil:They will comment as though the person (who gets the comments) committed a crime and they are alone blessed.What a sarcastic attitude:eek:mg:

    Hi dear sindhuja,
    How are you??Everybody (ILites) feel the same about cleanliness.So we all of us look for a presentable house.

    I too have come across such persons.They cleverly look for what we say,obtain the fact from us and do with out our knowledge.

    Thanks for your feedback..Keep going..:)

    Dear oviya,
    Welcome.:)
    Your feedback is emotional.Good that your intensity of irritation is low now.Very well said,it needs maturity and experience to realise that nothing can be done for certain circumstances in life.

    Have a nice time and enjoy your motherhood.

    Thanks for your feedback dear...
